Holding Patterns

So, on this day...what should be Day 126 of the TreeHouse Chronicles, I find our family in a holding pattern!

Circling and circling...ugh...makes me nauseous just thinkin' about it!! Blech...have you ever been on a plane in a holding pattern? The little ups, the little downs, the round and rounds? Makes me wanna jump right outta that plane.

Or use the barf bag...which would probably be the wiser decision...

But, anywho...we sit.

The TreeHouse was placed on the back burner 'cuz of the insane amount of leaves in our yard. Those leaves are now in nice little rows...strai
ght, perfectly spaced (hello, Mr. Perfection), cute little rows...which are now covered in snow.

Ugh...double ugh.

And the TreeHouse?

Still sits like this:

But, covered in snow. Poor thing., we've covered the TreeHouse, the leaves...know what else is in a holding pattern?

This stinkin' fly:

It has been on my window, in that exact spot, for months (and, you know who didn't do their fall window cleaning...). It kinda grosses me out.

The fly.

Not the windows. I don't get worked up about dirty windows.

Hmmmm...maybe I should, then perhaps they'd get cleaned?

But, I digress...right now, I'm off to do a different sort of holding pattern...

That of holding my family close! We're gonna do some Christmas baking and present wrapping!!

Hope your Sunday is super!


  1. Enjoy your fam today!! Happy Sunday :)

  2. We have our fair share of holding patterns as well. It's just life, or Home on the Range!

  3. Eew fly :o) Have fun with your family today.

  4. Cleaning windows is overrated. Hope you had a great day with the family!

  5. Sometimes holding patterns aren't the worst thing .. and in my opinion, that especially counts when talking about window cleaning! Ugh :)

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here:  Halo Braid Tutorial!  Let me know how it goes! I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it. Instead, I got this: Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks! Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

Halo Braid Tutorial!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay! This braid looks intricate, but is really quite easy and quick to pull off...the original video (prior to the warp speed the video to see what I mean) was just a bit over 8 minutes long...not too shabby! So, here you go...right in time for you to try it out on your little girl for Easter!

Crock-Pot Fajitas

You! Yes, YOU!! You must stop whatevertheheck it is that you are doing, and make this recipe. Right now. Tonight. Well...wait. You should probably finish reading this post you know how to make it... But then...STOP! STOP everything, make this, and thank me later! Oh, hold it...wait just a sec (again)...actually, I got this recipe from Melissa...yes, the Melissa of this story ! And this story ...which, the same story, just told two different ways! ;) So, you can thank her...I guess. Well, in any event...prepare your tastebuds to be tantalized! You'll need this: And, this: You'll also need chicken breasts or steak, but since photographing your "main ingredient" is, like, soooo passe, I've left it out. ( Ahem... ) Just keepin ' up with the times, friend. So...slice up those peppers and onions into cute little strips... And...try your best to not slice up the little fingers that are sneaking away pepper strips... (Lemme just inte
